Community Performance: #1000Strings

Come out to Hintonburg Park and feel the power of 1000 violins all playing together! This will set a new world record!

You won’t want to miss the fun as Grammy-winning violinist James Ehnes, Carol Gimbel’s Music in the Barns, the Gryphon Trio‘s Roman Borys and Annalee Patipatanakoon, and a host of local string-player celebrities lead a mass string ensemble in a unique, participatory concert experience.

Written by award-winning Canadian composer John Oswald, Spectre was commissioned by the Kronos Quartet in 1990. The work combines live quartet with multi-layered overdub, creating the illusion of a 1000-piece string orchestra. With #1000Strings, the community joins forces to make that illusion a reality.

Young musician, avid amateur, seasoned pro, or enthusiastic concert attendee, spend your morning with Chamberfest and participate in this extraordinary community performance.
